Subject: RE: Grimshaw Guitars
Hi,

In the late 60s I worked in central london and went to Grimshaws a few times. They had a first floor office/workshop in (from memory) Great Pulteney St W1. I tried their Les Paul copy which was amazing and was going to buy one but had to switch to bass coz our bass player moved out of London. I don't recollect the guitars being built there but the pickups were wound in a small backroom workshop.

A few years after, the guitarist in our band got an acoustic fret stoned and set up there but I seem to remember them either moving or packing up later in the 70s.
